Wedding In Cana

W hen a wedding took place
A t Cana in Galilee
T he mother of Jesus said to Him
E very wineskin is empty
R emember the story from long ago

I nto the ceremonial pots* water was poured
N ot wine but just plain water to wash hands and feet
T o clean away the dirt(sin) of the world
O ut came wine(His blood) a New Covenant

W ine to cleanse away all sin
I nto the ceremonial pots* water
N ew wine, great wine, the best wine came out
E ternal love, grace, salvation _Eternal Life came in  

Ceremonial Pots were pots that contained water 
for washing away the dirt of the world or the 
sin that the Jewish people came in contact _
Remember Jesus washing their feet..
The water = the law
The Wine= allegory or metaphoric language to speak of His shedding of His blood on Calvary or of drinking His Blood at the Passove
or in our communion of today...

    Dear Sara: What an inspirational poem, FANTASTIC! I really loved the way you used "water into wine" to spell out the poem's first letter of each stanza. Thank you for taking the time to read and comment on my poem. Peace!
